He said, “Without question Wendy Thibodeaux is the most deserving to be recognized as assessor of the year. She has been a strong advocate for the residents of Lafourche Parish.  She was there for them in Hurricane Ida, donating her time to communities hardest impacted.  She has proven herself to stand up for a fair and equitable tax system.  She has been a tenacious leader and works closely with her colleagues to fend off unfair tax policies.”    

Assessor Thibodeaux said she was honored to receive an award that recognizes an assessor’s true mission and role in their respective communities.  She said, “It’s been more than 25 years since I stepped into the Assessor’s Office with a passion to learn.
